I love free activities in our town. It is so nice to see the community make an effort to do things for us that don’t cost a lot of money. Honestly, we can’t afford to do the things that cost a lot of money, so we really take advantage when things are free!
This weekend we were so excited to see our children’s theater do a production of Alice in Wonderland in the park. We got Hannah in her pajamas, packed snacks and drinks, and headed to the park’s amphitheater. Let’s just say – it was a disaster! We were sitting on an anthill (on the amphitheater’s seats); Hannah did not want to sit in the stroller to fall asleep; and then the play started.
This was the absolutel WORST play ever! The actors did not know their lines; the singing was out of tune; the microphones did not work (and the actors did not enunciate); and no one knew what was going on! I know it was a children’s theater, but it would have helped to have at least been able to hear what they were saying! The director was completely oblivious that many people were leaving during the performance. I know that it was free, but sometimes even free is not worth the effort!
Oh well. At least we had some time out as a family, and I guess that was really the point anyway.
